Wiimote Smoothboard / perplexed
« on: November 17, 2010, 02:23:16 PM »
Hi.  Newbie, obvioso.  I have read a ton of stuff, downloaded tutorials, got all the parts and it works, right off the bat.  Woohoo!  However, I find that the wiimote has a useful width of way less than the 45 degrees touted by Johnny Lee and that it just does not work with a standard classroom size 8' x 6' projector screen.  What am I doing wrong?  I just now spent an hour and a half trying some 40+ positions, angles, heights, whatever, and all I get is a useful screen area of about 2' horizontally and 1' vertically.  To reitereate, it works, and works fine within that space, and works fabulously when the wiimote is pointed toward the laptop as well (obviously it is well within 2' x 1').  Otherwise, though, useless.  Any idea?  As I say, I am certain this brand new wiimote has not only a very very narrow operating range, but also cannot be more than four or five feet from the screen or it doesn't work at all.
